Imagine a situation where the Minister says something and his department officials does the opposite.
In these times we all are already very stressed out because of the pandemic and are staying home as much as possible but what happens when you have an emergency and you have to go out. So let me bring in the context. It happened to me today when I was driving my mother back from the hospital after getting her covid19 report (which was negative) but as soon as I came out of hospital it wouldn’t have been 2 kms and I was stopped by the Delhi traffic police, I being a law abiding citizen stopped my car in the side of the road. I saw the traffic policemen, he was very delighted (bakra mil gya). He said that I didn’t have number plates I showed him the tweet of Delhi transport minister and the website bookmyhsrp.com (you can get hsrp plates by appointment only) where it showed that no appointment is available but he was chuckling inside and he said “ask about that from the Delhi transport minister yourself” and he hurriedly gave me a ticket of Rs5000.
Now I am puzzled as to what should I infer from that. Does the Delhi traffic police think it is above the minister?
Or is the Delhi transport minister playing games with gullible public by misinforming them and leading them to a trap so that he can save his face by saying that it’s not compulsory on one hand and on the other not stopping traffic police to earn revenue from traffic challans?
Is it an ugly game that Aam Admi Party playing with people at these stressful times to earn revenue?
